  • All results are adjusted for each of the covariates listed in the first column.

  • * P values were obtained by the Wald χ2 test for Poisson regression.

  • Estimated mean return visit rates were calculated while holding covariates constant at their average values.

  • Reference group is the 0% discount level.

  • § Incidence rate ratio is for every 1-year increase in age.

  • Reference group is men.

  • Reference group is the Gabriel Park clinic.
